Mark your calendars now for the City of Johnston’s annual holiday celebration, Holidays in Johnston, held at the public library on Saturday, December 6 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm.
The party begins when Santa arrives on Johnston Fire Department’s ladder truck and continues with Johnston High School Madrigal Singers and the Summit Middle School Flute and Clarinet Choir. Stay to decorate a Christmas cookie provided by the Johnston Women’s Social Connection members. Officers from the Johnston Police Department will provide fun and games and Hy-Vee’s dietician will host a special food craft for the kids. The gingerbread house contest, sponsored by Johnston Community Education, is another can’t-miss part of the day.
There will be a prize drawing at the end of the afternoon and the lucky winner must be present to claim his or her prize. Make sure to stick around for the end of the celebration because Santa and his helpers will assist in the official lighting of the decorated tree located in Johnston Commons near Merle Hay Road.
